System of Rice Intensification

Capacity Building for Field Adoption

Proposal to Government of India for funding support


System of Rice Intensification

  • SRI – a package of agronomic approach to improve rice productivity through
  • Optimization of input use especially seed
  • Effective management of irrigation water
  • Low cost interventions for weed management
  • Adoption of IPM and INM with emphasis on organic input application

Simple , environment friendly, input saving, yield enhancing, low cost interventions aimed at cost optimization and profit maximization


Capacity Building

  • Need
  • Awareness, Motivation, training & capacity building & handholding services at field level
  • Focus on small and marginal farmers

Initiatives hitherto

  • Efforts are on by Line Departments, Research Institutes, NABARD, KVKs and NGOs since its introduction
  • Initiatives were sporadic / confined to a few districts and States
  • Significant impact of initiatives by Sir Dorabji Tata Trust (SDTT), WASAN and PRADAN

Capacity Building: NABARD’s Initiatives

  • Grant assistance of Rs. 63.77 lakh for capacity building of over 6500 farmers in 10 States
  • Active involvement of DDMs in knowledge dissemination and credit planning
  • Focus on SRI in the pilot project launched for augmenting productivity of lead crops
  • Sanctioned a grant cum loan assistance of Rs. 22.35 crore for SRI adoption in 20000 acres by Farmers’ Groups in Karnataka under UPNRM
  • Distribution of publications in vernacular through Farmers’ Clubs

Capacity Building: Strategies

  • Impart training to Farmers’ Club members to perform as Master Farmers in innovative technologies including SRI
  • Empowerment of partner agencies
  • Exposure visits for farmers
  • Sensitization of field functionaries of banks on the concept and credit need assessment
  • “Credit Plus” support

Proposed Model Programme Unit - Features

  • Developed based on the successful Model of SDTT supported programme and feed back from other partner NGOs like PRADAN and WASAN
  • Each model unit to cover 400 farmers in 16 villages during first year and 560 farmers subsequently
  • One SRI Facilitator covering four villages and one Project Coordinator to provide on-site guidance and assistance to the farmers.

Model Programme Unit

Physical coverage

  • *To stabilize at 224 ha from fourth year
  • Demonstrative effect to motivate more farmers

Model Programme Unit

Components & Financial programme

Rs in lakh


Implementation Aspects

  • Replication of 150 models in 14 States identified based on potential, on-going programmes
  • Focus on small and marginal farmers, share croppers
  • Implementation through NGOs with past experience
  • Involvement of line dept., Research Institutes and KVKs in training and capacity building
  • Active involvement of Famers’ Clubs, Farmers’ Interest Groups

Monitoring & Documentation

Role of NABARD

  • Monitor the progress through DDMs and ROs
  • Periodic review of progress reported by partner agencies through specifically designed MIS
  • Mid term review
  • Documentation of quantifiable benefits covering all farmers in the Model Unit by the Partner Agencies through specifically designed formats
  • Coordinate with agencies like SDTT in monitoring & documentation of success stories

Expected Outcome

  • Expected Outcome at the End of Third Year
  • Outreach -84,000 farmers adopting the technology.
  • Area Coverage under SRI -28,800 ha (coverage in the first and second years at 7200 ha and 14,880 ha respectively; Demonstrative effect likely to bring more area coverage)
  • Productivity - An increase by 15 to 25% depending on locations (to be validated through documentation)

Funding Pattern

  • Programme Implementation with effective convergence of similar development initiatives of Government of India
  • No. Of Model Units : 150 over 14 States
  • Proposed Funding Pattern for consideration
